Re: Has the Traveller timeline ever advanced?

We have been talking about this a lot behind the scenes - going beyond the FFW and up to when the Empress Wave hits important things. The one problem we have is that Traveller does not only cover a huge amount of time but also space - we could spend the rest of our lives detailing Charted Space in 1...

The Traveller Companion - It Exists!

Well, we have been talking about the Traveller Companion for quite some time now - it was first mentioned in the Core Rulebook. I can now safely (and proudly) say... the manuscript is with us, fresh from the fertile mind of Martin Dougherty! I have already gone through a draft of this book, but now ...

Would Mongoose ever consider collecting rules clarifications like these and maintaining a "Sage Advice" style document?
It is certainly something we should properly look into.

Re: Why no career books?

We have looked at this and we believe that, in and of themselves, the careers in the Core Rulebook pretty much cover everything. That said... There will be some variant careers in the Traveller Companion, and we are currently working on a Psion book because, well, there is plenty to expand upon ther...

It is basically a toolkit for Traveller, things you can plug and play into your campaign - we'll have a contents list for you soon!

Re: 2300AD - Any News?

Hey there,

The new 2300AD has been completely re-written from the ground up, and is currently undergoing editing. We did consider having the core rules in the book, but it was growing too large!

Re: Upcoming Traveller releases

1. It will indeed be 1105 (pre-pre-pre FFW!) 2. We tackle all major worlds and a few minor ones - we are unlikely to cover every world of any sector (even the sparser ones of the Great Rift!) as referees benefit from having areas of their own to create their own adventures in. Basically, we don't wa...

Re: Victory at Sea Playtesting - Basic Rules

umm probably a daft question but how do I know what aircraft were on a carrier as the carrier just says 10 flights for example ?. or am I missing a document ? Well, this has been the topic of some debate :) We were originally going to provide exact load outs, but they changed so often throughout th...

Re: Welcome to the Open Playtest

Well, I don't want to be insulting, but when I read all the comments, and all the questions about VAS II, it seems to be an untidy draft copy. It is an untidy draft copy - that is all part of the playtesting process :) By the time the book is printed and released, it will be ship-shape and Bristol-...

Many thanks for this, you raise some great questions - we will be looking at them all. The first thing I would like to discuss with everyone is the destroyers vs. bad weather issue. The realism in me says this works well and nicely counterbalances the destroyer horde that tries to overwhelm an enemy...

This is not a good answer, but I am afraid it is accurate - we have not heard anything about this since seeing the last draft.

Decorative fins are half the cost of aerodynamic fins and use no extra space. If the player does a drawing of the ship, they're free.

Something to try out on Wakeless torps...

A ship using Evasive! may not force a Wakeless torp to re-roll a successful hit.
